“Health Care Reform Compliance Workshop: Your Questions Answered”
The landmark health care reform bill signed by President Obama last year is packed with complicated consequences for all sectors of the nation's health system. And perhaps no one faces more burdens (and potential penalties) than employers.
No longer is health care reform a topic you can ignore. The bill has become law, and you need to understand its impact and the steps your organization needs to take to comply.
Get up to speed on your new responsibilities by signing up for our special audio recording, Health Care Reform Compliance Workshop: Your Questions Answered. Learn (in plain English!) the specific steps employers of all sizes need to take to comply with these regulations before they are fully enforced.
Using a simple year-by-year timeline, experts Melissa Listug Klick and Patrick Casinelli break down your employer responsibilities in easy-to-understand steps. They explain the changes coming in each year between now and 2018 and the decisions employers need to make to stay in compliance.
Some provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act don't take effect until 2014. But many others are kicking in now, including changes to dependent eligibility. You MUST understand this short-term timetable and how your company must respond - plus the long-term timetable so you can plan ahead.
